May Membership Meeting:
Susan Harwell
as the Norwegian Lady

Join us at the Chesapeake Central Library on Sunday, May 21, 2023, for our membership meeting to hear the story of Johanna Jorgensen and the sinking of the Norwegian ship Dictator, presented by storyteller Susan Harwell. 


As part of her mission to share local history, Susan Harwell has been telling stories of Norfolk County and Princess Anne County for many years. She often tells the story of Grace Sherwood (the Witch of Pungo) and now, she presents the tragic, yet fascinating history of the Norwegian Lady. 


Our meeting starts at 2:00pm on Sunday, May 21, 2023, at the Chesapeake Central Library. Don’t forget to bring a friend!  Light refreshments will be served.
